now and you mitt romney. we talked a lot about that red line whether the president is clear enough making a red line with iran. netanyahu publicly criticizing the administration for not doing that romney citing with netanyahu. take a listen to the family we met with last night who are supporting president obama. >> i think he has made it hard for the united states to keep israel with this special ally status that it's had because the united states can't be pushed around by anyone. i just think that obama is being very rational and reasonable to a bully right now. >> the president taking the iran threat seriously enough right now or does netanyahu have a point? >> he has built an international coalition. he has succeeded in buildi in i embargo against iran unprecedented. >> mitt romney said things like president obama has "thrown allies like israel under the bus." he also said on "60 minutes" over the weekend that the president made a mistake by not meeting with netanyahu. the next family we met with certainly agrees, says the president still has time to meet with netanyahu. here is

out there in denver for us. there is all this talk about, you know, what romney's challenge is going into tonight's debate. but what about the president? what about the challenge facing the president? is there any chance he takes the fight to romney? >> yes, in the sense that i expect that he will try to force romney to drill down and get specific about some of the tax changes that he would specify with the ways he would trim the deficit. his campaign -- the president's campaign already signaled that. here is how his deputy campaign manager steffi cutter put it in a new video they put out today, brooke. >> mitt romney hasn't given us any specific details of his economic plans. so we can use tonight's debate to give us the details for first time ever, or we can spend 90 minutes doing what we know he's good at, attacking the president, distorting his own record, and avoiding any and all details of his plans for the country. >> now, obviously that's expectation setting and priming the media to already start looking for any specifics, weaknesses by romney in getting into the details. but

that so many people are talking about romney had a gaffe. it turns out he was right. that one that it was wrong to put pout an n a statement -- criticizing the -- apologizing for the video which the administration continued to do and obama will do again today in his u.n. speech. but also, you know, who had the foreign policy gaffes? it has been president obama. president obama went on "60 minutes" and called what's happening in the middle east bumps in the road. first ambassador killed since 1979 is a bum open the rop on t? >> mr. obama came back and said bumps in the road meant there is going to be problems in the middle east you have to deal with. >> i'm sure -- >> i'm just trying to be fair. >> i'm sure he tried to spin it. well, no. i mean, the thing is no one is fair when mitt romney supposedly makes a gaffe that turns out not to be a gaffe. when president obama says something like that, everybody is busy explaining it away. this was a major foreign policy gaffe. that same interview, he said that israel -- complaints from israel were just noise. referred to israel's complaints

rebels, get rid of assad, and you have mitt romney who is talking about what he says is something that is more aggressive. what do the syrian people tell you? what do they want? >> this is really complicated. they feel if they're pro-government or even sort of -- they haven't been affected by the war, they may not be pro government, but they're afraid of the rebels because they don't see them as being united and they're afraid of what will come with them in a power vacuum. they would say stop even giving the rebels any sense that you are going to support them. even if you are only giving them communications equipment, stop it. make them realize that they need to come to negotiating table. if they're on the rebel side, they say, look, they're abandoning us. you want to get rid of assad, just give us the weapons and let us get on with it, and we can finish it ourselves, but what is very clear through all of that is there's no unity among although different opposition groups. there's no emerging leader, and what is -- what will be created by further fighting? there is more bloodshed.

barack obama and mitt romney are in full political mode. so i talked with candy earlier and she believes the pressure is on romney to nail this first debate. if you agree with that, does that mean that he's got to try really hard to answer every question in detail or carefully avoid certain issues or topics that might be pitfalls for him? >> i agree with that, mitt romney is behindnd and even if he wasn't behind, the president won in 2008 if he can hold his voters from 2008, he can win. romney is the one that has to dislodge voters from the president. i look at the polling in this case, it does turn the expectations on its head in one respect. the challenge is not so much to make a case for president obama, as it is to make a case for himself. it has been able to --. he will do better over the next four years, in particular, he is suffering from -- that he does not relate to or really care about the lives of average working people, i think that is much more of a challenge for him, he didn't really do it as much as he needed to at the convention, that i think is job number one, m

is a place we have not heard these candidates talk about much, have we? nothing from romney during the republican convention, very little from obama, especially at the u.n. this last week. the debates will likely be a different story because this weekend the death toll for americans in the war surpassed the 2000 mark. the soldier who made the helmet cam video suffered only minor wounds and has returned to duty. but it's amazing that he suffered only minor wounds when you see this incredible story. his fight to survive is gripping. take a look. >> fire! hey! i'm moving down! ah! ah!

presidential debates we've seen in history. here's how he outlines it. when you talk about romney's strength he says he's smooth, knowledge able, excellent first lines and tends to pivot. he says president obama, his strengths, he can be detached, he has an ability to focus and crystallize that's very strong on his reasoning. donna, do you see either one of these as being accurate here? do you think that there's some sort of opportunity, if you will for the president to attack on romney's strengths or is he pretty formidable? >> look, i think president obama is preparing very well for this debate based on what i've seen in the newspapers, but, you know, this is like the opening night on broadway where you're both playing to the audience and the room as well as to the public out at large and if you get a good review as i hope president obama will receive, then that will continue to help him, you know, lead in the polls and get people out to vote. i have to tell my good friend anna president obama has not been in a one on one debate since october 2008 unless he's doing something behind closed
